To celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th 2022, we have collected a selection of our favourite female led and curated items, including what to listen to, what to wear and ways to celebrate femininity in all forms.

March 8th is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women, who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.
